  • Design experiences with both first-time users and experienced return users in mind.
  • Collaborate with data analysts to measure the success of your flows and define points of improvement.
  • Define, improve, and educate the broader team on Startpage’s UX design process.

What You Will Bring

  • 3-5 years of experience in UX, with an extensive portfolio demonstrating work in user experience, wireframing and prototyping, and user research
  • Strong understanding of the user research process, and experience with usertesting.com or a similar tool
  • Proven thought leadership on usability and user-centered design principles
  • Research and data-first mentality
  • Basic understanding of web technologies
  • Experience as a successful designer or researcher in the consumer applications or data privacy space preferred
  • Experience working with design systems preferred
  • Experience working with Figma (for wireframes, designs, or prototyping) a plus

An Insider's view of System1

What are some social events your company does?

One thing that System1 really prides themselves on is company culture. We want everyone to feel like family at the company and nothing brings people together better than our social events.
I enjoy attending events like LunchNLearns, team happy hours and anniversary or holiday parties because I learn more about my teammates outside of the office.

Auryana

Online Marketing Analyst

What does your typical day look like?

I definitely never have the same day twice! I truly look forward to going to work and a big part of that is the variety of projects I get to work on and people I get to work with. While I love digging in on the latest anomaly in the data, I’m also a people person, and this role is really the perfect balance of screen time and face-to-face time.

Alli

Account Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

Since joining System1, I've grown in both my technical abilities as well as my interpersonal abilities. I've been given the opportunity to steer a complex migration that spans across teams and then provided with the freedom to pursue solutions that have a real impact on the daily operations of our engineering team.

Jaime

DevOps Engineer

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started out at System1 as a data analyst. But as I discovered performance bottlenecks, I enjoyed digging deeper into how our systems were built, and even made small contributions myself. Since then, I've been able to learn from my colleagues while using on-the-job training to grow my career, now as a software engineer. Never stop learning!
